6:17 pm
the coastal low and will throw back enough moisture into that cold air to produce locally heavy snow for us. here's what this looks like. by 9:00 tomorrow we will start to see first little pieces of precipitation, generally light rain around 9:00 tomorrow engineer city, light snow in the poconos, probably wtrmix in. precipitation stays light until mid-morning wednesday when we can see a ban of heavy rain over portions of south jersey and in the city. we have to watch how quickly this change over happens. that will hold the key to how much snow is going to fall but likely by noon or 1:00 o'clock it is snowing at a very, very good clip across the region. you can see from the lehigh valley right down to philadelphia and suburbs still seeing rain down the shore through the afternoon though 3:00 p.m. we will see banding set up over portions of south jersey still snowing at a good clip in our western suburbs and then starting to wrap up by four or 5:00. by 6:00 heaviest snow lifts toward new york city.
6:18 pm
by 11:00 o'clock wednesday evening most of the snow is over with and certainly ending through overnight hours into thursday morning but this will leave behind a brief, heavy dump of snow, through the afternoon hours, we call it a thump when snowfalls very heavily, short period of time usually between 11 and seven is peak intensity but snow could fall at one to 2 inches per hour a zoom 2 inches per hour over four hours you're talking 8 inches of snow right there. it starts between 9:00 and midnight tomorrow night, heaviest is wednesday midday into thearly evening, major travel problems all day wednesday, storm moves by thursday morning. we have set our confidence meter here, maryland rate because we do know we will see significant totals someone in our area will have a close to a foot have snow probably even more. what we have to see just how much that mixing sets up over south injuries which that will held down totals for these areas and how long that banding we have to watch where band set up that is your heaviest snow.
6:19 pm
i'm thinking bull's eye will set up north and west of philadelphia, those are areas mess likely to see close to a foot of snow. as far as wind gusts are concerned we will see brief intensification of the win during storm, wins gusting to 30 to 40 miles an hour not as bad as last storm but more heavy wet snow in trees and brandes, winds 40 miles an hour, trees are weaken, ground saturated and that means another round of down trees and wires cannot be ruled out with this system, again, less winds, more snow, that is the hallmark when you compare this system to friday's storm. so wednesday, heavy snow through the afternoon mixing with rain at first, changing to all snow by midday, thursday a few lingering flurries, friday late day snow shower possible and then quiet start to the weekend, that is some good news and we do spring, forward over the next weekend which means daylight hours will last longer at this time next week so a tiny bit of good news. >> it is silver lining.
